Kevin Smith: SModimations: Season One DVD cover

 Kevin Smith: SModimations: Season One
 

  Review by Suzanne 10/20/11

This is the second time I've watched a podcast put to animation, and frankly, I didn't like it either time. It just doesn't work for me, for some reason. I guess it's too distracting to try to listen to what they are saying and also pay attention to the animation. Since a podcast is basically just, two guys sitting around talking, having them try to put animation to it is just distracting for me. You may feel differently.

There are two features in the disk as well that are not animated. One is a live podcast "Hollywood Babble On", with an audience, with no animation. I didn't find that all too exciting, either. I did enjoy the second one, entitle "Jay and Silent Bob Get Old" with Jason Mewes. That was pretty funny.

Just be warned that if you are watching this, it has a lot of bad language and scatalogical humor. If you're a Kevin Smith fan, you probably already know that... The DVD is not closed-captioned for the hearing-impaired.

KEVIN SMITH: TOO FAT FOR 40 Blu-ray(tm) and DVD

Poking fun at his much-publicized brouhaha with Southwest Airlines, writer, director, actor and ardent podcaster Kevin Smith declares himself too fat for his 40th birthday in a hilarious show before his rabidly loyal fans. Filmed at the Count Basie Theatre in Smith's hometown of Red Bank, New Jersey, this comedy special spotlights not only Smith's self-deprecating sense of humor, but also his fondness (and true gift) for spinning a good yarn. Tracking the turbulent year in his life in which he was tossed from the sky, Smith makes with the funny but still manages to ask the hard questions - like "Whatchoo talkin' 'bout, Willis?"

Originally a two-hour special, this deluxe 2-disc edition includes the uncut three-and-a-half-hour Q&A, as well as hours of exclusive bonus features!

Special features:
* 3 1/2 hour performance
* Additional Encore Q&A
* New Intro
* A Look Behind the Scenes
* Over five hours of content!

SMODIMATIONS: SEASON ONE DVD

Since 2007, filmmaker and pop culture loudmouth Kevin Smith and his longtime producer and friend Scott Mosier have been littering the Internet with hundreds of hours of dopey stoner storytelling and chitchat called SModcast. Now Canadian animator Steve Stark cartoons the weirdest and funniest conversational snippets of that chatter into SModimations!

The laugh-out-loud-funny first season of SModimations has now been edited together with brand-new material to create a seamless animated feature film experience tailored for both the Smith-obsessed as well as total newbies! Strap on a diaper and wet yourself laughing while Kevin and Scott take you under the seas to meet an aquatic superzero, use black magic and old-timey boxing to fight the Rapture and cast the spell that lets young wizards everywhere slut it up with zero repercussions, "FORGETICUS!"

Bonus features:
* Jay & Silent Bob Get Old and excerpts from Hollywood Babble-On
